This site was upgraded for the 2005 season with new toilet and shower blocks. It is a large open site located on the shore of Loch Morlich. 7 miles from Aviemore on the road to the Cairngorm Ski Centre. 220 touring pitches with electric hookups and ample room for tents but book ahead in high season. Great location for all outdoor pursuits. Small outdoor shop and cafe next to site. Contact site re disabled facilities.
Total pitches: 220

Glenmore Caravan and Camping Site. OK, But...
Glenmore has a lot going for it and during holiday periods a lot going to it too. The location is perfect for those who enjoy the great outdoors, with miles of walking of all levels of difficulty or effort, spectacular scenery, a beautiful beach and one or two off-site eateries within walking distance. We’ve always found the site staff to be welcoming, helpful and often a good laugh too. The facilities block is usually clean despite extra usage during peak periods, though can be busy when one of the two blocks is closed for winter. In essence there are three parts to the site. There’s a large area for tents, some with electric hook-ups. Another split area for vans and motor homes, and the “Pinewood” down near the loch. Pitch in the pinewood and you really are camping in the forest, pitches are well spaced and one has a feeling of seclusion even though there’s a track passing a few metres from your door that can be quite busy as folk head off to the forest trails or down to the loch. The downside is that it’s a fairly long walk to the nearest CDP and toilet block and at least 250m to the other CDP that you will have to use when the nearest one becomes full. The main (upper) parts of the site are pretty featureless and bare and even with the “3 metre rule”, during busy periods can in places look rather cheek by jowl and a bit like a busy seaside commercial site. We’ve found the upper facilities block is closed for winter despite the site being at full capacity during Scottish school October holidays and during each of our past three stays in October the lower CDP has been closed as full and resulted in us carrying our toilet cassette on a fairly long 250m + hike to the upper CDP. This it seems, according to a reply to a complaint to Forest Holidays, happens every six weeks and the tanker is ordered when BOTH CDPs need emptying. The site must be a very good source of income for Camping in the Forest/Forestry Commission. It’s open all year round and is well patronised; and not cheap. It does though need a substantial injection of cash to improve landscaping and drainage and perhaps extend the electricity network. As it stands the main part of the site is far from what many would imagine as a “camping in the forest”. “Have you ever thought about pitching up under a glorious, multi-coloured canopy, in a sea of golden leaves? Visit a Camping in the Forest Site and you can do just that!.........” The above from the Forest Holidays website could be interpreted as misrepresentation as far as most of the Glenmore site is concerned. It’s a bit of a shame that the Camping and Caravanning Club is associated with the site as it doesn’t really quite match club site standards elsewhere. The one advantage for club members is the member discount from Camping in the Forest. Despite the above critical comments the site is a good base and in a perfect location for exploring miles and miles of forest. loch and mountain geography and we’ll continue to visit.

Glenmore Caravan and Camping Site
First time away in our new camper with our young toddler and we think we will struggle to find a better site! Location was fantastic, perfect pitch over the beach allowed for lovely sunsets with a glass or two of wine. Our little girl was fascinated by the ducks and kept her entertained. We loved how the site was so accessible to walks/ cycle paths. The cycle route to Aviemore "Laggan's way" was particularly stunning. Aviemore close enough for a visit and easy to jump on a bus. All round an excellent trip: we will be back!!

Glenmore Caravan and Camping Site
We've stayed here many times. It's one of our favourite places. Loch Morlich, that is, not the campsite. Because apart from the superb toilet blocks, the campsite has nothing to offer. It's the location that's great. The loch is stunning, but that's off the site. As is the shop, or the kids playground. Or the pub. As other reviewers have said, the grounds are very poor. The roads are all potholes. The same ones for many years. It's pot luck if you can get a tent peg into the ground. It's either rocks or mud. And it must be the most expensive site around. Over £30 a night. But as it's always busy they must feel there's no need to sort things. But we've seen the light and have found cheaper and much better sites. I won't be back here for a few years. Maybe they'll improve things. We can hope.

Stay here every October. Site has no control over the weather unfortunately but the location is second to none. If you have a caravan try to get a hardstanding pitch over the bridge. Everywhere else is a bit of a mudbath unfortunately. It has been like this for years now and though the hardstanding has helped with the amount charged the site really needs to improve the potholed roads and the overall drainage. Another negative point - the top toilet block was closed. Albeit there were few campers there were plenty caravans and queues formed for showers in the morning. Also, toilet block was closed between 11-12.30 for cleaning with the only alternative being the wooden ones in the forest. Why does it take over an hour to clean a loo block. Not good given the prices paid and another reason to open both blocks. Staff could do with lessons in smiling too. Nothing like that warm welcoming highland hospitality (Hmmmm!)

Camped here in late July. The location is fantastic with loads of activities available nearby. Toilets clean and modern. Be careful where you pitch as some parts of the site are liable to flooding. Cheap food and drink available at SYH across the road from site.

Pre-booked the trip,£40 for 2 adults,2 children for 2 nights. Good sized camp to pitch up & you can choose where you want to go. Site has a shop & cafe selling the usual things. Aviemore only a 5 minute drive away so in great location. There are plenty of toilets & showers which are very clean. Dishwashing & laundry facilities next to them. Great walks throughout the park & onto the beach. There's a children playgroup made from wood, not your traditional one but the kids loved it. Now the downside. The midges are a MAJOR problem & if your not use to them then you'll find it difficult here. We had all the usual stuff with us but it didn't deter them & on the morning we were leaving had to pack up early as the whole area was swarming with them. Just our wrong timing i think. Camp was relatively quiet apart from some usual rude campers who I thought could have been told to keep it down as there is a night warden around,who ensures bbq's are out by 10pm.

Glenmore Caravan and Camping Site
I stayed two nights in a tent here in May. I had intended staying at the Rothiemurchus, Coylumbridge Camping and Caravan Park, but on arriving and inspecting what was on offer, drove the six further miles to Glenmore. Who wants to (voluntarily) pitch among trees? I have been camping for decades and want the wide open spaces - if possible - away from over-hanging branches and tree roots. Of course once I arrived at Glenmore I discovered the prices. £33.00 for two nights for one person, car and tent. That was with a discount! Subsequently, I found that a further discount is available for over 55's, if one asks at the time of booking. Despite the expense, I enjoyed my stay. Obviously very convenient for Cairngorms and I walked-up Bayack More directly from the site. Facilities clean and in second week in May, plently of space to select a decent place to pitch my tent.

The camp site is in a very beautiful part of the country. There are shops and coffee shops near by. The toilet and showers are newly done and are clean and warm. The site itself in my oppinion is not well kept. It is patchy, uneven and the grass doesn't seem to be cut. When it rains it becomes very boggy and has lots of puddles in all the dips. It is also expensive.Idid not find the staff very friendy and informative. With it being surrounded with trees there is also lots of biting bugs. If it wasn't for the cycling, walking and water sports nearby this site would not be used

We stayed there last summer for 11 nights and had a great time. We found what we considered to be the second best pitch on the site (first place was the one immediately next door) and felt secluded enough but had we been in the main area if would have felt very crowded. There are two large toilet/shower blocks with seperate dish-washing facilities which were kept in very good order by the staff. Showers were warm rather than hot. The small shop next to the site has a good range of products at reasonable prices and a 'restaurant' attached to it which is worth a visit. Aviemore is 8 miles away by road or bike trail/footpath and has good facilities. The general area is just stunning! The site is pretty large and could feel very crowded if you don't find the best spots and I would have liked a few more water points and rubbish bins around, but other than that it is superb. Well worth a visit and we will be going back!

Huge campsite, well run with very good facilities. However its a bit of tent city, with loads of people and pretty noisy. Good location for Loch Morlich beach and the Cairngorm mountains, however no feeling of relaxation or getting away from it as the site is just too big and busy. Booking essential in high season and weekends.

Here for a pre-midge kids camping weekend in May and had a great time despite a life and death struggle with the phone booking system and a storm-drenched arrival. Wardens friendly but similarly bemused by the booking system. Plenty of space but hard to find a spot with grass cover and give for pegs. Lovely views everywhere and great shower/loo/washing facilities (just got 5 stars from an inspection). Kids can roam freely on bikes round the site, to the beach, through the forest and down a lovely five mile cycle track to Aviemore. Bike hire is cheaper and for a longer day on the campsite itself (£16 until 8pm) than from the shop next door though breakfast at the shop's cafe is great value and accompanied by red squirrels. The site may be too cosy and busy for those seeking a wilder more natural experience appropriate to its setting but it suited us fine

First time campers and we chose Glenmore because we know the area reasonably well. Campsite is 15 mins drive from Aviemore, with a small-ish Tesco's right in the centre for all your supplies. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful on our arrival, 'here's a map, pick any orange dot you like'. Couple circuits to find the perfect spot, pitched up, and kettle on in no time. Plenty room between tents, and all quiet from just after 10pm. There's a wee shop at one end of the campsite, which sold everything we needed of it, and a pub (Glenmore Lodge) 15 mins walk from the other end. They also do food. On-site activities were mainly restricted to the weekend, but seemed well attended, we didn't partake as we had already planned our days. Met the assiatant warden (the real one was on holidays) again very friendly and happy to chat. We'll definetly go back (once the midgee bites have gone). In all honesty there weren't that bad, only one evening did we consider them annoying, and you can get them anywhere.

We booked for a week but left after two days lost our money will not be going back. site lovely and clean lovely views shame the rest let it down...and it took us six and a half hours travel time.

Stayed for a weekend in May 2008. Superb location in woodland next to loch. Kids spent a lot of time exploring the campsite, and we went for walks and cycles (plus watersports) for the whole weekend, leaving the van in situ. (excellent meal at Glenmore Lodge, too, bytheway). Found the staff very welcoming and the facilities excellent. On the expensive side, but worth it - we'll definitely be back.

The stunning location is the saving grace for this site and make it (just about) worth the money. Was disapointed that a surcharge is levvied for booking in for a single night only, seems to discourage a sense of adventure, but then the site felt a bit like suburbia misplaced. Camping in the wooded area helps to avoid the suburban feel but the ground is very stoney and tough to get tent pegs in. Staff were not very friendly or helpful, seemed most concerned with making sure we'd paid the extra fee for a second car. Can't beat sitting beside Loch Morlich with a glass of wine watching the sunset though!

Glenmore Caravan and Camping Site 2008
The site has changed a great deal since our last visit, in 2004. It used to be a jewel - the best-kept secret in British camping. Sadly, it's no longer possible just to turn up and pitch a tent right under Cairngorm. You really do have to book well in advance, i.e. it's become a middle class package holiday. Why is it necessary to have a "play area" for children, when there's a beautiful loch, a great big forest and wonderful mountains?

We visited Glenmore on the 1st week in April 2008. The site is very basic, but and ideal base for those who enjoy outdoor persuits. The toilet and shower blocks are immaculate and well heated. The staff were extremely freindly and helpful. The setting though is perfect, and will take your breath away!

We stay here about 6 times each year. My only complaint would be that yes the prices have been hiked up a bit but it's still our favourite site as you can do so much from your front door. Following on from previous complaints on this page, the showers now have lots of coat hooks, there is an all new reception area with no glass partition, there is a new playground courtesy of the Royal Engineers, next to the shop/cafe. The shop/cafe (which is not part of the site incidently) you can order papers, now has a sauna under it, serves evening meals. Glemore Lodge about a mile up the glen also serves meals (children welcome) with great views and good value for money. Also try Charlie Parkers down at Inverdruie - lods of food and an indoor play area for the kids (a proper one like a kids bedroom, not one of those ghastly soft play efforts). We like the fact you can pitch anywhere and as caravanners we like being in with the tents because there is generally more fun to be had (caravan only bits have too many curtain twitchers sealing themselves off in their white boxes to watch black boxes these days)

Stayed here in July, lovely staff, can pitch tent anywhere, only prob with that is choosing where to pitch! Facilities all brand new and kept clean, showers too. Great location, can leave here with bike/for a walk and there are plenty of routes, no need to take the car. Just next to forest & loch so loads to explore. Site is quiet about 10-11 as most people are knackered with all the fresh air! Aviemore itself about 7 or so miles away and has loads of places to eat (both Harkai & Smithy chippies are fab for food, mountain cafe for breaky, Cafe Mambo/Roo's Leap/Cairngorm/Skiin Doo Hotel for lunch/dinner. We go to Aviemore a lot!) All in all great site, if expensive but worth it.

Overall a very nice site. The location is excellent, right in the heart the Glenmore forest close to Loch Morlich. You can walk in any direction and enjoy great trials through the forest. The site itself has good pitches with plenty of space between tents. The toilet blocks are the best I have ever seen. The site also has a good shop/cafe which is useful. My only slight niggle would be the price, about £8 per person per night camping which is quite expensive but overall a great site.

THis place has a location to die for! We visited for the first time in Easter 2007. It is a large open site, where you choose your own pitch. This can be great - or a nightmare depending on how chummy your neighbours get and how busy it is. The loos are as everyone says, clean and new, so all sounds great - until you need your wallet! Pitches are ow no longer bought, there are all sorts of little add-ons, resulting in our nightly fee being wait for it - £31!!! Bear in mind this is for a grass pitch with no guarantee of space. We were a family of 2 adults and 2 children under 10, one car, caravan and awning. We arrived after staying elsewhere, desperately needing to wash clothes. Machines £2 per wash, but the tumble dryer took the cost up to an eye watering £13 before the stuff (2 loads of clothes, no towels) was reasonably dry! Other niggles, bearing in mind the cost - the tarmac roads were very worn and scrappy looking, not aware of a playpark for the kids, the grass desperately needed re-turfed in areas and the pitches can be lumpy. However, with a sunny day and a barbecue, it is a special place.

Think twice before visiting this campsite. We booked in January of this for a party of six tents assuming we would be assigned pitch numbers. Wrong. Both the caravans and the tents were all together which upset both caravaners and folk in tents. There was not enough room for our tents. The staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. During the hot weather the dubstins were not emptied for three days on the run and stank. The toilet facilities were not cleaned properly, hairs in the showers each day, toilet bowls with human waste not cleaned properly. Spoke to numerous campers and caravaners alike who have been coming to the site for years who said it had gone totally downhill since new management took over and would definitely not be returning, like our party. Which is a real shame because the location is beautiful, pity about the management of the site.

Only 3 stars for kids faciliies but they don't need facilities here as there is so much to do. On site beach on Loch Morlich is great. Big site but facilities big enough to cope, modern and clean. We were unlucky with noisy neighbours but warden dealt with the situation tactfully. Good base for enjoying all the National Park has to offer.

Absolutely Fine
We camped here in sub-zero temperatures just after Christmas and have no complaints at all. The site was busier than we expected with plenty of tents as well as motorhomes/caravans. We had no problems with noise, no doubt due to having a different type of camper from the summer holiday crowds. There was plenty of space in which to chose a grassy pitch and the shower/toilet block was clean, bright, spacious and warm, and also very quiet because of the time of year. One good thing about this site is that they charge by the pitch, which as a family of four saved us ?7.50 per night over what we would have paid down the road. We'll happily stay here again outside of the main holiday periods, as we prefer to keep away from noise and crowds and can understand that this site would be very popular in the summer because of the excellent location.

Nice place but...
The site reopened summer 2005. We visited in late October 2005 in our motorhome. Apparently the site closed in order to build two new toilet/shower blocks. These are large and well maintained and cleaned. Can’t understand why they didn’t put decent coat-hooks on the backs of the doors in WCs or showers or provided proper lighting in each row of shower cubicles instead of lighting only one row. We found the main site to be a bit featureless which came as a surprise after reading the brochure. Rather a shame that the company hadn’t used the closure period to plant a few more trees or shrubs and spread some more gravel on the caravan / motorhome pitches. This would help create a bit more seclusion on what is currently a very open site. It might also help reduce some of the noise mentioned in earlier reviews.We also found the reception office to be a bit unfriendly with the receptionist behind a glass screen indoors and us ‘outside’. We were lucky and found a pitch in the “Pinewood” which is just off the main site and as the name suggests, situated in the trees and is very close to Loch Morlich. This was a super situation, nice and quiet (the main site was full of kids on bikes due to school holidays) but the disadvantage was the long hike to WCs/showers and chemical disposal point. A torch is essential if staying in this part of the site during the darker months. This is an excellent site for families with children looking for outdoor activities. There are miles of cycle routes and walks through the forests, boating and fishing, a sandy beach, dry sledging slopes and other attractions. A small shop beside the site carries a limited range of groceries and provides carryout hot rolls and fish and chips though it closes rather early for evening meals. Our star ratings: Layout/Privacy – Main site 2 **. Pinewood 4**** WCs/Showers – 3*** (would be 4**** but for lights in showers and lack of coat-hooks) Location – 5***** Things to do – 5*****

Glenmore Camp Site, August 2005
This is the first time we have stayed here since the facilities were upgraded. The toiletes and showers are much better now, however this site is very noisy at night especially with groups of young lads and lassies returning from pubs at all hours. Tip: don't camp near the toilet block it is far too noisy. On the up side it is surrounded by beautiful scenery and a good base for the wonderful highlands.

At the beach
Great location with cairngorms on door step and even has a beach on shores of loch morlich-kids loved it.The new shower block is a welcome edition,Clean and modern and in a central location(the old block was a long trudge away. The site would have got 5 stars if they had a better kids play area but with all that natural beauty about cant complain. not far from aviemore and all its facilities. If taking kids head for landmark in carrbridge-great day out and great value.

Great New Facilities
First visit since the facilities have been renewed but have camped here for many years. New heated, modern facilities make this site far better than before. Ideal base for watersports on Loch Morlich and walks in the Cairngorms. Have on more than one occassion seen otters and kingfishers at the burn bordering the site. Good dog walks from the site.

great site
Stayed here at weekend 9/7/05, great for watersports at Loch Morlich, the new toilet blocks are roomy with 8 showers still queues but its a big site. It's at bit noisy with kids up on the go from 6.30am but overall its a good site.

Improvements welcome
This would have one less star if I hadn't read that the showers etc are to be upgraded this year. This was the main failing of an otherwise great location in an area with loads to recommend it.
